National Volunteer Week 2023

Published on Tuesday 16th of May 2023

This National Volunteer Week we extend an enormous, heartfelt thank you to our exceptional team of volunteers.

Our volunteers generously lend us their skills, passion and energy to further the important heritage work of Museums of History NSW.

Over the last 12 months this committed team has created memorable visitor experiences at our museums, enhanced discoverability of the State Archives collection, created replica soft furnishings pieces for our house museums, supported our Horticulture team to keep the Vaucluse House kitchen garden looking beautiful, and so much more - together they have contributed over 13,000 hours of service.

At this week's annual Volunteers’ Morning Tea we were thrilled to recognise 55 volunteers who have reached significant length of service years and hours milestones, including dedicated volunteers Laraine and Elaine who were recognised for 35 and 40 years respectively – an incredible contribution.

We deeply value the hard work, generosity, and loyalty of our wonderful volunteers!
